The Dillinger Escape Plan Announce Final Live Show

The Dillinger Escape Plan have confirmed that their final show will take place at Terminal 5 in New York, NY on December 29. Code Orange and Daughters will serve as support.

Greg Puciato commented:

“For me, in terms of shows, New York has always been one city on a short list of them, where every Dillinger show felt like a homecoming. Maybe it’s the proximity to New Jersey, maybe because we’re all east coast natives, maybe for me it’s largely because it was the location of my first show with the band back in 2001, and maybe a lot of it is just the overall energy of the city itself.

So many incredible shows, unforgettable memories on and offstage, and familiar faces both backstage and in the crowd. Add to that the fact that geographically its the one city that makes the most sense for anyone traveling from the east or west, or up the coast, and this was kind of a no brainer from the beginning.”

Phil Anselmo (Pantera, Etc.) & More To Sing For Warbeast At Their Farewell Show

Warbeast have revealed that Phil Anselmo (Pantera, etc.), actor Edwin Neal, and Wayne Abney (Hammer Witch) will handle vocal duties during their farewell show at The Rail Club in Ft. Worth, TX on July 14. This news comes after Bruce Corbitt recently played his final show with the band due to his esophageal cancer diagnosis.

Corbitt commented:

“For our FINAL Warbeast Show ever… we are ecstatic that our lifelong friend, brother, label owner and producer Philip Anselmo will be singing the bulk of the Warbeast songs that night. It was a no-brainer when it came to who I wanted to be on that stage with my bandmates in my place that night during our final set ever.

Since I can’t do it… I still wanted this band to have the best possible ending. Luckily he’s happily agreed to come to Texas and send this band out with a bang.

It was Philip that gave this band life… and it will be a treat for our fans to witness a true metal legend sing both old and brand new Warbeast songs. This is what I call an appropriate perfect ending for this band… considering the unfortunate circumstances we’ve been dealt. I love you like a brother Philip!!!

Also, Warbeast plans to premiere our new music video for our song “Hitchhiker” that night. The song is obviously based on Edwin Neal’s character from Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Ed will also be appearing in this new music video too. Much to my surprise… Ed told me that wanted to sing this song about his alter-ego for me that night. That is just too damn cool… so I obviously said, “HELL YES!!”

Even Philip thought this was like coming full-circle for me… pointing out how Rigor Mortis and our crew was kind of like our own TCM family back in the 80s. We were even promoted by Capitol Records as the Texas Chain Saw Massacre of Metal. Now here we are 30 years later and Ed is going to be singing with one of my bands. I’m freaking out on this too!

It also made perfect sense for us to include the man that is the reason Warbeast even exists in the first place. 11 years ago we put together Texas Metal Alliance to help Wayne after his near-fatal motorcycle accident. The band eventually evolved into Warbeast… and the rest is history. So we wanted Wayne to be part of this… and he’s going to sing a classic old Warbeast song and also a one of the new ones. His new killer band Life Of Scars is also playing that night as well. Thanks Wayne for everything brother!!

Another cool thing is that everyone attending this show will be able to buy our new Warbeast album “Enter The Arena” three weeks before it’s released everywhere else!! The actual street release date is early August… so if you want it early… you need to be at this show!!

Finally…. many of my close friends involved in putting all of this together have insisted that this show will also be a benefit show to help me and my Wife Jeanna Corbitt. Our gratefulness for this gracious gesture can’t be put into words. We are again shocked at the love and support we are receiving during this hard time in our lives. We’ve been told that the $10 admission will all go towards our medical bills in my fight to beat cancer. UNBELIEVABLE!!

So all of that right there will make this one of the biggest nights of the year for our D/FW Metal Family!”

Rosalie Cunningham commented:

“‘Chocolate Money‘ is a snapshot of the ostentatious decadence of the ’70s. The mythical rock star character with his double-entendre and self-centred hedonism. The industry has become a very different world since then, which is something I will expand on lyrically with my next album. It has inspired my desire to go back to basics and remember what music is supposed to be about.”

“The past five years have been an unforgettable whirlwind, for which I have to thank our wonderful fans around the world, the band and all the people who have contributed to Purson’s success over the years. Their support has been overwhelming, but the Purson framework has gone as far as it could go, and now it’s simply time to move on. I feel strongly drawn to a more DIY approach to my career in music, and look forward to the freedom to explore many avenues as a solo artist.”
